Aqua Painting: Comparing Brusho, Classic Stampin' Ink & Watercolor Pencil

When preparing for this month's card class, I knew that at least one of the cards would involve using the Brusho Crystal Colors available in the recently released Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  It was while using the aqua painter and playing with the Brusho that I decided to compare the results when coloring with Brusho vs Stampin' Ink vs a watercolor pencil. For the comparison, the flower bouquet from the Petal Palette Stamp Set was stamped onto watercolor paper using Archival Black Ink.  The Brusho and Classic Stampin' ink were applied using an aqua painter and for the watercolor pencil, the image was colored  then blended with the aqua painter.  Below are the results:

Two layers of Color Medium Added

Third Layer of Color Medium Added

As you can tell in the photos, the Brusho Color Crystals provide the most color depth and intensity.  The third layer of color improved the color intensity on all samples.  Regardless of which coloring medium you select, all provide beautiful results.  

Thanks for stopping by and check back to see the card created for the class sample!
